She’s here! Safaree announced Monday that his wife Erica Mena gave birth to their baby girl!
The baby announcement featured a pic of their newborn holding Safaree’s finger. You can see the pic below:
His caption said: “These pass 24 hrs have been an adventure to say the least! I’m a part of the #girldad club now. Perfection is here.”
The hashtag Safaree used was a nod to the “Girl dad” movement inspired by a Kobe Bryant story told by ESPN reporter Elle Duncan that celebrated him being a father to daughters.
Safaree and Erica Mena expressed their excitement for their bun in the oven when they shared a video revealing Erica’s pregnancy back in October of 2019.
The couple confirmed to VH1 that they were expecting a bundle of joy. For a while, their followers had been keeping a close eye on them as they suspected that they had a little bun in the oven.
In the video, while rubbing Erica’s tummy, Safaree says, “I didn’t know I was capable of doing this, but I’m excited.” He continued, “I’m excited, I’m nervous, I’m in shock, I’m in disbelief. It’s like very surreal to me, so it’s like, woah I don’t know what the hell to do, but I’m gonna be great at what I do because I’m great at everything.”
The couple got engaged in 2018, on Christmas Eve and tied the knot in October 2019.
We knew the baby was coming soon as the couple held a Met Gala-themed baby shower back in late November.
This is Erica’s second child and Safaree’s first child.
Congrats again to the couple on their baby girl!
